The Nine Lives of Jacob Fallada is the story of an outsider, a lonely, misunderstood young artist who chronicles all the unpleasant things that happen to him in life.

Abandoned by his parents, brought up be a tyrannical aunt, bullied at school, ostracized by the local community, nearly everyone Jacob comes into contact with takes an instant, (often) violent dislike towards him.

Like Job from the bible, he is beaten and abused, manipulated and taken advantage of. Life, people, fate, circumstance force him deeper into his shell, deeper into the cocoon of his fledgling artistic work, where he records every significant event in sketches, paintings and short-form verse, documenting his own unique, eminently miserable human experience.

At heart, he longs for companionship, intimacy, love, but is dealt so many blows he is too scared to reach out to anybody.

On the fringes of society, he devotes himself solely to his art.

Teaser: Excerpt

When he finally got to the bottom of the track, Jacob couldn’t quite believe what he saw. In a secluded clearing, in the shadow of several grand old oak trees, stood a dilapidated, mildewed caravan, missing its wheels, with one window boarded-up, and a rusted old aerial dangling from the roof. Still breathing heavily, he put his bags down again and looked right and left. Closing his eyes, he listened to something that wasn’t quite silence—there was a gentle breeze rustling through the trees, the odd soothing, chirruping birdsong, maybe even the far-off sounds of waves breaking on the shoreline—but something that was as close to silence as Jacob Fallada had ever known before. “Home at last.”
